1995 Audi URS6
You're right.We are due an update, sir.
I took the panel off to fix the wiring and hopefully wire in the new headunit. It was even worse than the first time I put it back to stock. To be fair the speaker cable that I initially removed was not actually connected to anything so this had been done before. I am currently trying to find a shop local to me that is willing to take this car in and get the whole thing wired up properly for sound. Just the speakers to a head unit, nothing fancy. Frankly I just hate wiring and do not want to muck with it.
I also found out where the missing wire goes to. It was going to the plug that you can see right about the door latch cable (purple). That brown wire and red/blue was snipped. I need to figure out what it goes to, but I think it is the IR transmitter for the door locks. The car came with instructions that were circled and such for converting to RF door locks and included a kit that has since been thrown away.
This is a muffler and some rubbish on the ground
This is where I snipped the OG speaker wires. you can see just how little wiring I have to play with before having to de-pin and re-pin.
This is the coolant return line that Marc @ EFIExpress made me. Long story short, 034 would not split apart or source me any coolant or oil return/feed lines. I needed one line and they refused to assist in any way. I contacted Marc and he had one made and shipped within the hour. This was splendid. 034 is no longer getting my business.
This is the hose that I originally intended to use but it turns out -24 AN is bigger than I thought
This is my garage as it sits... waiting for these parts to arrive.
I am currently waiting on:
- This little thing for the transmission that holes one of the things for the shifter (pic below)
- Nuts for the turbo flange. $10 a piece.
- EFI Expresss downpipe (will fit my current downpipe in the meantime)
Other than that I purged the gas tank and am ready to fill it up with a fuel system cleaner and some fresh gas. The gas was orange in color so I think it might have been bad. Maybe. I scoped the tank out and it was fine. I also pulled out the 044 pump thinking I could clean the filter but gave up because gasoline scares me and I didn't want to blow up my garage.
Oh, and I need to get the two new Hella horns mounted up. They came with a relay but I don't think I need it as there are already two pairs of wires run for it. The stock mounting point is not an option because the intercooler is there and the aftermarket position the old ones were mounted in is not my favorite, but I can't really do this until everything else is back together and I can figure out where things need to go.
The gauge turns on which is good. Hopefully my "rebuilt" wastegate works and I don't lose all boost or pump all the boost. We'll see.
I just realized we have a long weekend and I really want to get the engine in this weekend, but I don't know if it is worth doing that then having to mess with putting the downpipe and turbo on while in the car. It's kind of a tight space.
